"fda is constantly monitoring the science on the substances or products it regulates, including bpa. fda'fda's strategy to address concerns about bpa is founded on science; we have invested significant resources to research and review any and all scientific findings." >> the fda, the food and drug administration, can regulate chemicals that can get into our food. bisphenol a isn't only going into our food, in fact it's not considered a direct food additive. it's an indirect food additive, in that it makes its way into the food by leeching out of the containers that come in contact with the food. and so the legislative authority isn't straight forward. >> as an indirect additive the fda is limited in its ability to regulate bpa. bpa is protected by its use in interstate commerce, making it difficult for the fda to restrict use. >> there is a lot of push-back from the chemical industry from the companies that are making these products that are convi
, they can go to $2. they can go to $2. if the fda approves the hep-b vaccine, i think the stobl could double, i yes, double by the end of the year. it could be at half or double. now you know the risk reward. if you can handle the risk, i think it would be worth taking the weekend to do some homework and put in some limit orders to pick up some dinah vaccine at a decent price before it gets away from you. that said, the thing shoots through the roof on monday, do not chase it there is no data points for at least another six weeks. i told you this early. chasing is how you lose money. you either wait for the stock to come back down or take a pass. don't pay up for something that can fail spectacularly if the fda decides to give it a thumbs-down, that's when it goes to 2 or up. the fda could squash like a bug, it is the kind of stock we like to speculate on "mad money." this is not an investment. this is a speculation, okay. put it in the category of heckmann, some money you got mad at. didn't understand it was speculation in oil. first, company's hep-b vaccine has already posted incredible tr

inconclusively. avoid the are nthe carnage. qescor is not your typical stock. it isn't playing that fda roulette banking. the company has one drug on the market. a product called actar gel. but it's not a new drug that's untried or untested. qescor's rallied from 50 cents to $52 on the strength of this single product. i know. that may sound crazy. that certainly attracts the bears. but it makes sense because this actar gel has been approved for 19 different indications. in other words they have one drug. some people consider it a wonder drug. might as well be 19 different drugs. because it treats 19 different diseases. big ones multiple schlerosis flairs, infan tile spasms and nephrotic syndrome. they had been going higher and higher. they keep interdugs the gel to more doctors who use it to treat those 19 conditions already approved for. the company is testing actar on new indications. when the trials are done it can only gain fda approval to treat more diseases. so then what went wrong? what do people hate about it? why did qescor get clobbered over the course of july? okay. there's always bee
